It feels as though I have looked at all the feminine desks available on the internet in the history of time! I am struggling with finding a pretty desk that speaks to me for our home office refresh!
A lot of pretty desks are too delicate, and just feel too small for our space. Big desks in general fall on the dark and masculine side.
Feminine Desks For Our Home Office
I don’t necessarily want an office full of pink hues. But I don’t want the room looking too dark and heavy either.
My office already has navy grasscloth up on the walls. (Read about my experience installing the grasscloth wallpaper here.) The grasscloth is pretty dark, so I am bringing a lot of white into the room.
This is the look I am going for…

The desk in my mood board is this high end beauty of a desk that is so hard to track down. Since I am floating my desk in the room, I loved that this looked good from both sides. This desk is LARGE.

11 Home Offices That Use Feminine Desks
Below are 11 beautiful homes offices. Direct links for the items in each office are included.
This home office is giving me major inspiration! This room uses a desk that could go industrial but still soft and feminine… a bit of both. The wall of built ins keeps the navy from feeling overpowering.
Here is the same desk again! What a lovely set up. Shop this sleek desk here!
With built ins like these you don’t need anything but his and hers chairs and a rug. Don’t you love those stunning velvet chairs? See the velvet desk chair here!
I also like how Monika put a pinboard in the corner of her office, here:
This pin board is from minted. They actually create some of the most beautiful custom pin boards in all kinds of sizes! Shop pinboard here:
When I think of feminine desks, this is what comes to mind. This is the most beautiful desk, and it is rarely in stock because it is so popular! The raw wood and the thick top is so, so beautiful! I love that she combined it with the navy velvet chair. Want to see this same desk used in two other beautiful home offices?
I love the industrial features in offices when mixed with feminine desks.
This is hands down my favorite desk. It has been around for years, but it is still hard to get – often back ordered. See this beautiful desk here.
Black And Wood Look

This home office is what made me want to hang two pendants instead of one over the desk, for symmetry.
With the desk floating in the room you don’t need much else in the room. It appears she is using a table as a desk too – a great way to reuse a piece you already have! Shop these lights and almost identical black chairs here:
Have you SEEN this desk? It is pretty, with clean lines and a nice white top.
This is probably one of the best price points for a pretty white desk that is such a good size. Shop this gorgeous white and brass desk here!

I love white and brass together. I found this gorgeous, similar look here if you are wanting more storage:

This gorgeous white desk is a scroll stopper and gets me every time! Serious storage, acrylic legs, and beautiful knobs. And there is our favorite velvet desk chair again – this time in a rose color! The glossy white desk with the brass details complements the chair perfectly.

I like the added glass top for protection. (That’s an easy thing to do – call up your local glass company on the phone and give them the measurements.) The bow chair is the chair of my teenage self’s dream!
Shop the whole look here:
Alas, that desk does come with quite the price tag. Looking for a similar desk at a fraction of the price? This more affordable but still beautiful desk is quite popular as the “dupe” version!
I like the knobs on this desk, but if you added some larger (agate?) knobs and you will have yourself a similar look. Expect to have to put this one together though!
I am crazy about this whole entire set up. This sums up what a feminine desk looks like, to me. I love that brass and light gray desk! So lovely. Shop this room here:
An Easy Formula For Putting Together a Home Office
If you are struggling on how to decorate your office, here is an easy formula that many of the offices I shared use:
- Don’t put the desk against a wall (unless you have a really good reason to – like a big picture window with a great view!)
- Use a stylish desk, combine in with a pretty chair, and bring both pieces into the middle of the room. This is now the focal point.
- Add lighting and a colorful pillow for your chair.
- Directly behind the desk put either: two bookshelves or a large piece of art on the wall. (Or if there is a window centered behind your desk, that works instead). That’s it! You’re set! The walls don’t necessarily all have to be filled with art or stuff- the eyes are drawn to the desk in the center of the room.
